Default Sinningia leaves molded and rotted- tuber should be okay, right?

I got some sinningias in the mail a few days ago, and on one, the leaves were caked together with mildew. I'm guessing it may have been just a little bit too damp. I planted it anyway, but the mold killed the leaves off. When I took it (and the moss around it) out, I found that the tuber was still firm and healthy-looking. I can't see any signs of molding on the tuber itself, only on the dead leaves, which fell away immediately upon being touched.

I've set the tuber, without anything else, in a small flowerpot to dry out. I didn't scrub it or anything, I don't want to damage it, and I figure being in the open air will kill any mildew on it. My plan is to leave it out for a week or so, then plant it back so it can regrow. That's the best route to take, right?

Yep, just trim off any soft parts and let it dry out for a while.

New growth after shipping is anyways way better than trying to keep the old stuff anyway.
